Are you having issues with some plug-in hardware not working? What would make you think it's broken?

Also it would help if you told us what operating system you're running and maybe a bit about your computer.

just a few questions so members can dissect the issue. Admiral Michael already pointed out what Version of windows?

1) What Version of Windows are you using?

2) look inside your case, check for any loose connections on the hardware/motherboard

3) do a scan for new hardware

4) did this start happening recently, new install?

Few more questions:

1) So there is no serial port in device manager? (Can you provide a screenshot?)
2) Is there any device with a yellow ! beside it?
3) Most newer PCs don't have serial ports anymore. Do you actually have a serial port on your computer?
4) Is this for a laptop or desktop?
5) If it's was a store bought system what's the model number of the machine?

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
